Soa is always crazy busy so I do try to book online using the app. I also enjoy a mooch about the deli counter after for nice treats and girfts. This... More

We had a lovely waiter who knew about Canadian hockey and was very friendly and prompt. We had the sausage pasta and the seafood pasta and both were excellent.

This Italian cafe and restaurant is just minutes from the RSC Theater and the River Avon. The food is okay and it is a little pricey for what you get. It does good coffees and has an array of cakes available. It's part of a big Italian chain restaurant and lacks a bit of character and charm. I think I... More

I have used several restaurants of this chain and haven't been disappointed. This branch did not disappoint either. A good menu with some changes. Good choice of Chefs Specials. Service was good not too pushy. Staff were polite and were pleased to do what we asked. Food was good, well presented.

Carluccios is as ever, and like all the others in the chain-although I think (personal) it is about as italian as I am! I had a salad, wanted it undressed, and was told it was ready prepared and they were all dressed!This was AFTER I got it....so beware if you want a bare, undressed salad....!

Hi there, Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. Sorry to hear you were disappointed with your salad, some of our salads we pre dress to enhance the flavour of the dish so we can do some without dressing but not all of them. Next time you are in please ask your waiter or a manager which... More

Had a good breakfast here sitting in the window in the sunshine. Friendly waiter. Much nicer than the awful 'buffet' breakfast most of the hotels are offering now and cheaper.

Carluccio's is always of a standard that you can rely on. The food delicious and the wine excellent at prices that are alway acceptable. Our visit was on a Sunday early evening. The restaurant is large and with sitting space outside, near the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. I think on the evening we were there the serving staff were limited to... More

It's very hard to argue with the pricing of the set menu here - great value and a variety of dishes to please all ages/tastes - hence a 5-star. Perfect for a pre-RSC theatre meal. Attentive and efficient service (the waiter with the glossy longish hair was very charming to both diners) and good quality control across their branches means... More
